I really like the idea of GRW.. I wish the world was a little more interactive and the experience a little more varied. (44 minutes ago)
I'm definitely not getting it at launch if I'm ever playing it. (46 minutes ago)
But yea.. the beta didn't really aid my interest in the game. They may have missed the mark on this one. (46 minutes ago)
Bullet holes on corpses? lol... (47 minutes ago)
That's what I meant, but couldn't put into words when I said the game feels "hollow". Really doubt Ubisoft can fix it before launch, but maybe after several months. (1 Hour ago)
From the soldier: "But this game doesn't have that same FEEL for me. It's buggy and clunky, and floaty. There's no impact or weight to anything, I know that sounds vague but it's what I experienced." (1 Hour ago)
The man raises a lot of good points. Weapons sound weak, no bullet holes on enemy corpses, can't drag bodies to hide them, sound mix is flat and dull. Needs a lot of work. (1 Hour ago)
